Watch Mark-Paul Gosselaar Answer Interview Questions As Zack Morris

How did he react to Screech's violent suicide? Paul F. Tompkins' show Speakeasy has always managed to get a little deeper and weirder than most any other talk show on TV, and he may have raised the bar with his Mark-Paul Gosselaar interview. Tompkins, after asking some softball questions, gets Gosselaar to go through the rest of the interview in character as Zack Morris. Mark-Paul proves to be a pretty great sport about it, and demonstrates a healthy Saved by the Bell trivia knowledge as well.


Zach Galifianakis And Paul F. Tompkins Hold The World's Funniest Conversation

It's two of the funniest deadpan comics in the world, talking to each other. You might want to check this out. Made Man has sort of outdone itself with the Speakeasy series, which puts funnyman Paul F. Tompkins in a place where he's most comfortable. Namely, a bar. Bars are generally good spots for humor, but they're made all the better when they include Zach Galifianakis as this particular bar does, or at least this particular set designed to look like a bar. In this exchange, you'll find out, among other things, what "dyslexia of the mouth" is. It involves spitting out a drink when you should be swallowing. This exchange is presumably a promotional device for Zach's new film, The Campaign, but you'd never really know it judging by how damn funny it is. Comedians are funny when they're on stage, but as The Comedians of Comedy demonstrated, they're often at their best when they're just shooting the shit with other comedians. Like they do right here. Enjoy.


Malcolm McDowell Discusses 'A Clockwork Orange'

The film's influence shocked even him. Every once in a while, Malcolm McDowell comes around for an interview about his latest film or TV show, like Gangster No. 1, the Halloween remakes, or “Heroes.” Of course the temptation is always to throw in a Clockwork Orange question. Now finally here’s a chance to talk about nothing but A Clockwork Orange. For the Stanley Kubrick film’s 40th anniversary, A Clockwork Orange makes its debut on Blu-ray. McDowell is featured in many bonus features looking back at the film, and he also gave some in person interviews at the Warner Home Video offices to support the release. I threw in a Caligula question to compare the context of another legendarily controversial Malcolm McDowell movie, but really I stuck with Clockwork Orange. I could have asked up his upcoming roles in Silent Hill 3D or Vamps but do you really need news scoops on a video game movie sequel? Better to dig into the legacy of the droogs, copycat violence and to a lesser extent, Roman orgies. A Clockwork Orange Blu-ray streets May 31 along with a Stanley Kubrick Blu-ray collection and Malcolm McDowell’s Never Apologize DVD.


‘Paul’ Looks Like A Kids Film With Lots Of F-Bombs

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had. Their long hair totally kills their comedic strength. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had, as this trailer suggests that their long hair totally kills their comedic strength. The cast alone should make Paul can't-miss funny, with Jason Bateman, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, and Bill Hader all in supporting roles. Instead, we are left what appears to be something of a generic children's romp save for the gratuitous use of f-bombs. Also, if they referenced the alien's genitals one more time, they would have to call the movie Paul's Balls, which would just be horrible. Unless we're missing a big component of the film (which I doubt, considering this is the third trailer), this will be a big step backwards for Pegg, Frost, director Greg Mottola, and possibly the comedy films in general. Just kidding about that last one, but this film doesn't look great. (IGN)
